I submit that namecalling is NEVER appropriate on Metafilter.

"Might not hurt to actually know what something is before attacking it, moron." Seems like some people who have been around long enough to know better could learn a lot about civility and manners from some of the 14k crowd. I submit that namecalling is NEVER appropriate on Metafilter.

Mob-style takedown

Take a trip with me down the Riviera (#1, #2, #3, #4), where no comment is complete without a little vicious personal invective.

When the cat's away...

I'm seriously aware that Matt is gone for the weekend, but do we have to put up with crap like this?

I/P: look, we are behaving

I think it would be nice if today's Palestine/Israel thread didn't vanish (as per mathowie's recent MeTa post, stating that he is going to delete them all until further notice), at least not before the name-calling starts. The post itself is a bit of a bait, but so far the responses have been well-thought-out, even-handed, and intelligent.

I know you are but what am I. (liberal)

You know things have changed on MetaFilter when aaron gets accused of being liberal!

racism and land rights go hand-in-hand?

I believe some of the comments in this thread are completely out of line.

Broke the mold after they made 'im

It isn't every day we get a no-email, no-URL new member who develops an instant outspoken loathing for MetaFilter, calls us Nazis, and devotes himself with great passion to demonizing liberals. So join me in welcoming Real9 before it's too late.

Inappropriate name-calling in comments

"If you don't see what's so crass about that, you're a simple-minded fuckwit and I sincerely hope that your stupidity one day gets you killed."

More evidence of MetaFilter's demise.

Personal attacks received by email instead of in-thread. Weird?

Can someone tell me if it is standard procedure to receive personal attacks from Metafilter users in my e-mail box because I posted a comment that they didn't like? Wouldn't it be better to post their opinion of my comment in the normal Metafilter thread? Specifically I am referring to a comment I made on this thread.

boundaries of acceptable behavior

What are the boundaries of acceptable behavior for MetaFilter?

This is why I fear for Metafilter.

"I thought I told you to go screw yourself, you fascist piece of shit."

This is why I fear for Metafilter. Not that people get away with this--he got called on it--but the fact that people feel it's necessary or desirable to say things like this to each other, increasingly, in all kinds of contexts. I don't care how vehemently you disagree, nobody here is "a piece of shit." I'm not asking for "sanctions" or anything, just wondering: is there any way to cultivate a sense of civility here, or should we just give up and leave the place to the jackals?

crapping on other members has become acceptable

In my opinion, following members around in order to flame them and personal attacks have no place in Metafilter. I get the impression from the bile spewn at both long-term members (like aaron) and newbies (like redgie) that crapping on other members has become acceptible.

Lincoln told no yo momma jokes against Douglass

"Can't you folks simply address an issue and tell us what you think without attacking the poster rather than what has been posted?" A few threads have featured variations on this sentiment, so I figured the subject was worth a longer look here.
